Introduction: DIY Electric Motors As Generators.

In these demonstrations I use a stepper motor as a two phases alternator (AC) and some DC motors that act as a dynamo (DC), I convert potential energy of a weight into electrical energy rotating a DC motor with a thread. Also, we can see a hand crank flashlight that is also a radio receiver. This gadget also stores electricity into a NiMH battery.

    I built my own dynamo recently a few little pieces of an axis. Had some gears which then turned a motor which created the electricity for an led to light up. I will be putting it up on here in about a week a two when i get a supply of wood and some more gears.
